Harvest Results from the AHDB Recommended Lists trials

Other crops: Descriptive Lists (updated 27 August 2021)

Descriptive Lists (DL) – rather than Recommended Lists (RL) – are used where recommendation is not appropriate but for which there is a wish to provide some descriptive data within the RL system.

Far fewer trials are run than for the RL and differences between varieties should be treated with more caution.

Note: Links are added as soon as data is available

Information on commercial harvest progress


Results from individual trial sites should not be used to make conclusions on variety performance. The RL is based on information taken from trials across the UK over several seasons – which comprise four years for oilseeds and five years for cereals. These averages provide better information for comparison between varieties. When more results are available, validation procedures will examine cross-site differences further. As more information becomes available from the current harvest, this will contribute to the over-trials averages.
